The Alaska Dept. of Health issued a warning on Jan. 31 regarding a new HIV outbreak in the Fairbanks/Interior region among people with multiple and/or anonymous sex partners, those engaged in condomless sex, and people who use apps on Grinder and Snapchat to hook up for sexual encounters.

This is the second time in the past year that Alaska’s Section of Epidemiology (SOE) has identified an HIV cluster in Fairbanks. Last year, the state reported three new cases of HIV among military service members within a four-week period. The latest announcement is worse than last year’s. It includes a new outbreak of six additional HIV cases in the same area, with more investigation ongoing.

These cases were identified in October through December of 2022. Among the newly infected, 67% had gonorrhea and/or chlamydia co-infections.

To address concerns about a wider outbreak, the state is recommending more frequent testing for STDs, “risk reduction techniques,” drug treatments and faster reporting of HIV and STD cases. In particular, the state recommends regular testing for those in the LGBTQ community.

“Test all sexually active gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men, and all sexually active transgender persons at least annually for HIV, syphilis, chlamydia, and gonorrhea,” the SEO alert states. More frequent testing is recommended for people who “inject drugs and share injection drug use equipment, persons with multiple sex partners, persons diagnosed with a sexually transmitted disease, and persons with recent exposure to a sexually transmitted disease.”

The state also recommends screening “all parts of the body used for sex, including urogenital, rectal, and pharyngeal sites,” while encouraging STD patients to “refer their sex and/or needle sharing partners for testing and prevention services.”

The alert ends with a list of resources, including a link to Planned Parenthood clinics in Fairbanks, Anchorage and Juneau, along with a host of other private and governmental testing locations. There are no faith-based or pro-life clinics listed, and at no point does the state mention the two most effective ways to avoid STDs or HIV – lifelong monogamy or abstinence.

    I figure with our state now being the sex capital of all states we will see our cases going up and up. This come as no surprise to me. With all the LGBTQ+ people thinking they can do anything they want now. The part that bothers me the most is a couple days ago I heard that the blood bank is accepting blood from LGBTQ+ folks. I don’t want tanted blood with AIDS or HIV in it. Yes I’m prejudice that way. We’ve been told it’s incurable. Is the blood bank going to keep it in an area so only LGBTQ+ get their own blood or are the rest of us going to have to risk it? I’m not a happy camper with this decision.

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    Pretty amazing that Falsey Fouchie created HIV and is able to keep his “legacy” continuing on. Evil man. Abstinence and monogamy are the only safe practices!

  • Maureen Suttman says:

    How many cases were guys active in the military, and housed in Fairbanks?

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Why would you ask this question Maureen? Worried? Lol

      • Maureen Suttman says:

        As someone who has worked in the field of HIV in Alaska, I am aware of regular outbreaks of sexually transmitted diseases happen at the base in Fairbanks among other places.

        Maybe YOU are worried.

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        No. I am not worried. So, by your earlier comment, “You realize a significant amount of folks in Alaska get HIV from sharing needles, not sex. And ARE NOT GAY”, it sounds like you are contradicting yourself by saying your 2/2/2023 11:17 comment. Which is it? Are the Fairbanks military guys drug addicts or are they gay? Maybe they are both?

      • Maureen Suttman says:

        Not contradicting myself. YOU think HIV is a gay sex exclusive disease. It’s not.

    This is a free country , so to speak.
    If these folks prefer their own kind or in any fashion Not heterosexual in practice, that’s their call,
    Their guaranteed consequence should then be solved with their own wallet and not mine,
    yOu play, YOU PAY…..

    • Maureen Suttman says:

      How’s your heart doing Jim? Perfect eater and excerciser in that regard? You play, you pay there, too.

      How about fishing injuries. Or folks who joined the military for adventure, school or any reason other than serve the country, and their leg gets blown off. Do they pay to play?

      • Trevor Rollman says:

        Absolutely. Every choice A person makes comes with risks and benefits, opportunity costs, potential rewards and consequences. Sex outside of marriage and shooting up drugs is risky. I think that’s what folks are getting at. And the Bible is clear that sin, while fleetingly fun, will cost the ultimate price in the end, and wreak a lot of havoc in this life.

    One of the many 100’s of side effects of the bio weapon is HIV. Don’t accept vaxxed blood, and if you know you’ll be having surgery and possibly needing a transfusion, have your own blood stored for that occasion. What a mess Fauci and his cohorts have made. But it seems as though their days of poisoning America and the world are nearing an end. People are finally on to him and saying, “NO!”

  • Mayo says:

    Friend of Humanity. I looked at the Civilian Intelligence Network 3.0 that you cited. Here’s something else on that website that’s for sale: “Scalar Wave Fields will Protect & Heal You from Magnetic Field Poisoning. These devices emit a multi wave scalar field designed and proven to create an energetic faraday within atomic structures. This enables the biological and atomic processes of the body to remain in cohesion thus preventing cellular and atomic manipulation by EMF.” $1547.79! There are a zillion sources of reliable trusted information. This website is not one of them.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Mayo, there are references on that link to other scientists, doctors, and researchers talking about Fauci and the patents. What you consider “trustworthy” is not what I consider trustworthy.

      • Mayo says:

        Regarding your last sentence: you got that right. You’ve been fooled and conned and you wanted to be fooled and conned. Your legitimacy as an informed commenter is zero.

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        I am glad that the patents in Fauci’s name cannot be erased. I am not the one that has been fooled or is trying to fool anyone. Truth is out there – many researchers, journalists and doctors have the patent information offline. Truth will win in the end because truth always wins.

    • Clark says:

      Wow that FoH link goes down the rabbit hole of crazy.

      They claim that the Covid vaccine has HIv in it . You would think with billions of people getting vaccinated there would be a lot more than just 6 new HIV cases in a year, lol. FoH you really need to start going to actual science sites. That place is like a tabloid. Next it will be Fauci caught molesting bat boy to create the Corvids!
